Badrottie: Which one is better Affinty Photo, Photoshop, or, this ONE?

AP plugin support is rather incomplete.
Now does Pixelmator Pro include pro level features like 1-bit color space and duotones? CMYK? Full color profile support?

SirSeth: Has anyone else tried Affinity with Sony RAW? I tried on Win10 64bit with a 6-core AMD and 16GB or ram and it was agonizingly slow. The worst part is that recovering highlights and shadows was the worst results I've seen. Exposure compensation was almost as bad.

So besides the speed thing, is this a Sony RAW thing?

Affinity is also very good in editing TIFs and PSDs. No need to use jpegs.

firemonkey: I don't know where people are getting "slow" from. I'm running Affinity 1.6 on a laptop with an i5 processor and 4 GB of RAM. It's plenty fast, way faster than I'd have expected. I thought I was going to have to buy a new laptop soon, but now that I see how fast Affinity is on it, maybe I'll hang on for a bit longer.

Opening RAW is slow, actual editing is fast.

StanyBuyle: Probably OK for jpeg processing, but for D500, D800 & D850 NEFs it is unacceptable slow.

I develop NEFs with Lightroom, then move them to Affinity as TIFs or PSDs. No jpegs involved.

You do not *need* net connection to use CC.

tom1234567: by the time I buy the D850 Affinity will be obsolete ?

By the time I can afford D850 AP will be obsolete..

larrytusaz: I currently use the free Photoshop CS2 and Lightroom 5.7, this could be an interesting switch because yes I hate the subscription model. Does it work with 16 bit TIFFs? The 2-4 actions in Lightroom and Photoshop, can I have those "exported out" somehow or "reveal" the numeric values used for the level of contrast, shape of the curves etc so I could replicate those in here? Can you download the full EXE vs it being an "over the air" installation?

16-bit tifs are no problem, you can also use 32-bit for HDR (but tif does not support that..)
You can replicate a lot of adjustments but they do not necessarily translate exact.
AP is a normal application, install and use.

justmeMN: Locally, "urban explorers" have been known to ignore No Trespassing signs, and fall into abandoned grain elevators. The end result is that fire/rescue employees have to needlessly endanger their own lives to rescue these idiots.

Accidents happen. You cannot protect people all the time and all the places. Common sense helps a lot. And as B.F. said: "He who gives up freedom for safety deserves neither".

Does not look like Book anymore. MyBlock? Or what?

privater: With the same price range, better buy a NAS with upgradeable/recoverable capabilities.

NAS is slow.

User9362470513: HDR is utterly, utterly vile.

Gotta use it when density range is too big. But not like presented here.

On article Throwback Thursday: the iPhone 4S (92 comments in total)

4S is iconic, best design Apple has ever made. I moved to SE lately and it is almost the same, but at the end lacks the finesse of 4S. I did shoot some exhibition pieces with 4S so camera is pretty good (processed heavily those images though).

Michael Dbn: The iPhone 4s is a "Throwback Thursday" item . . . hell I only just replaced my iPhone 4 (not s) in January this year! 😀

I replaced my 4s a few months ago with SE. Still wondering if that was smart. But newest apps demand newer OS than 7 which was last comfortable OS for 4S.

It would be nice to read an article about IQ of these things. Especially still images, video is not so important to me (normal HD would be enough resolutionwise). Does any of these have zoom optics?

Jaakko Alatalo: Oh yes, wide angle shots from high up. Like that's not gonna go old real fast.

Moi Jaakko. Sometimes wide angle shots from high up are just the thing needed. Most of the time: why would they be anything else than the usual visual clutter we get even without drones? Jep, harkitsen dronekuvauksiin ryhtymistä...

In reply to:

panchorancho: More of the same boring junk. Just like those guys who switch from Canon/Nikon to get an A7R II proclaiming it's the best thing ever, but their photography is still just stale cookie cutter images that litter Instagram and Flickr in the millions.

I don't think Sony camera makes any real difference. Shooting remains the same.

Weerterbos: Real lesson #1.
Do not publish until paperwork is done. Or plaster it with watermarks until unusable.

It's the same as with music in the early days of internet. There is no lock on webcontent, so people will steal it.

Not the same. Early days you listened free (but illegally), now you can of course look free (but legally). In addition seems you can legally reuse and make money without paying the original creators now, unlike early days.

lacix: So, thiefs have right to steal yours, but you have to pay to keep it?

Sounds like that. I hope they are not serious.

In reply to:

willmore: Is this an actual 50mm lens or a 50mm 'equivalent'? Because we want the latter. EF-S please. Please?

actual 50mm I suppose? Because it will make a fine portrait lens (would if IQ allows..)
